You had a short, which kept blowing the fuse. Now the wire may have been pinched somewhere and finally come apart. You now need to trace the circuit with a voltage tester of some kind. Look for 12v dc at the fuse, then the switch input, the switch output and along the wire which usuall runs along the drivers side under the moulding at the door sile, under back seat into the trunk to the lamps. The fron light wires go through a grommet in the firewall up to the lights. Was the car in an accident or had work done just before this started.

    Try the local library for a Chilton or Motors Manual. They may have wiring diagrams. Haynes has manuals at the autoparts shops as well. Usually about $20. Wish I had one I could read to you, tough finding shorts without diagrams.

For about $50 you can buy a signal tracer pair at Harbor Freight. First you check at one of the lights to ensure there is no voltage. They you clip one lead from the signal generator to the power, and the other to ground. Then you follow near the wire, with the button pushed on tone receiver. You trace back until the tone disappears. That will be where the insulation on the wire cut through and shorted out.

Dodge magnum 06 dashboard lights no longer working what to do?

fuse. Tail light fuse. They are normally on the same fuse as the tail lights. So, you probably don't have any tail lights either. Open up the owners manual to the back pages. Look for FUSES. Find the diagram that shows where the tail light fuse is. Pull it out and replace it. You should be able to see if it is blown out. This will usually happen if you had a trailer hooked up. Good luck.

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?

fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

Have 2005 Dodge Magnum with LED tail lights. Brake lights come on when headlights come on and stay that way. Changed brake light switch but that did not help.

The only place I know of where the parking light circuit and brake light circuit can meet up is in the tail light housings. They both use the same ground circuit.
Its possible one of the lamp panels has shorted out.
You may have to get a used shop manual to get the wiring diagrams to be able to troubleshoot it.

96 dodge ram 2500 tail lights and instrument panel lights quit working at the same time all other lights work help please!!!

Check your tail light fuse, on the dodge ram the dash lights and tail lights use the same fuse so if the tail light fuse blows your dash lights will go out to alert you of no tail lights.
